She spent a few years living in a group home in Baldwin before she moved back to St. Croix Health. Ethel loved singing hymns, watching movies and visiting with her family. She also took delight in Christmas parties, chocolate and dressing up with her jewelry. She cherished her relationship with her mother and missed her dearly. She enjoyed talking about the old days, farming and her beloved pet dog, Jack.
